Proving Negligence in a Premises Liability Case
To hold a home or business owner accountable for the injuries sustained in a premises liability case, the plaintiff must prove that the property owner or an employee acting on their behalf:
- Caused the hazardous condition
- Knew about the dangerous condition and did nothing to correct or repair it
- Should’ve known about the hazardous circumstances on the premises
If the owner or employee was aware of the condition and it caused an injury, the victim is eligible to obtain financial compensation to cover medical expenses, loss of income, as well as pain and suffering. Remember, all negligence cases hinge on the claim that the defendant did not act reasonably despite possessing the responsibility to do so.
Our firm handles the following types of premises liability cases:
- Slip & fall accidents
- Dog bites
- Negligent security
- Toxic chemical exposure
- Swimming pool accidents
- Sidewalk accidents
- Staircase accidents
- Building collapses
- Building fires
